DR. O HAS SOME ANSWERS
I’M HERE TO GIVE LASERS A GOOD RAP.
Yes, they’re very advanced. Yes, lasers really are made of pure light. Yes, they’re virtually painless—but sadly I must report lasers in my office have none of a Phaser’s heat, and destruction, cool sparks, and that amazing beaming sound.
Even though we have the coolest and latest lasers…no blasts. No sparks. No pain.
Why are lasers better? Two words: No Friction.
Traditional drilling creates vibration and friction. They heat up in some awkward ways. But not so with lasers. Zero friction. They’re focused and avoid the major issues that cause trauma and pain.
When you visit, I can illustrate the difference. I think you’ll be amazed.
Why don't Lasers hurt?
They lack friction. Zero. They fail to churn up vibrations which is the real issue that causes pain.
I like technical details. More please!
Conservative, High-Tech Treatments
Less is more in dentistry, as we are constantly trying to save your natural anatomy instead of replacing everything. From fillings, root canals and dental implants to gum therapy, LightWalker lasers offer a staggering list of dental applications of any dental laser made today. LightWalker is also perfect for cosmetic dental procedures like Fotona’s highly effective TouchWhite™ laser tooth whitening. The laser can even be used during facial skin treatments, such as wrinkle reduction, cold sore treatment or something as amazing as tongue reduction therapy to open a patient’s airway to decrease snoring or sleep apnea symptoms.
Typical treatment procedures with LightWalker are faster, easier to perform with less pain and shorter healing times compared to conventional treatments.
Aren't lasers and phasers the same thing?
Absolutely not, except they look a bit the same. And lasers are soft and delicate while phasers melt a Klingon within six seconds and 55 seconds to one in full Klingon amour.
